Video blogging is the use of videos on blogs. It is often referred to as vlogging. Today, like many other forms of Internet marketing, there is cross over from one medium to the next. Video blogging could also be where you create a video, post it on YouTube, and then link back to a blog post where the content is words and graphics.
More on this in a minute. Video blogging has gradually emerged as one of the most recent and hottest internet trends. This is because it is extremely effective, economical, time friendly, easy to do, and as most people would agree, it’s very fun. You now have a better idea of just what video blogging is, so let’s look on how to make money from video blogging.
Here are 5 successful tips!
1. Chose a topic you want to cover
The first step in creating any video is choosing a topic. Choosing something that you are enthusiastic about will make it easier for you to come up with best ideas for a new video post. This will primarily be determined by the niche your blog is in. It will also be tied back to what product or service you are promoting.
This is why I am so strong on affiliate marketing. It is very easy to tie an affiliate product back to a topic of your video. One can lead to the other and vice versa. I have made many videos from text supplied by an affiliate program and posted those on my blog with links to the affiliate product in the body of the post.
2. Choose a tool that has a great video and audio playback
You don’t have to choose a video camera for this purpose, but instead, choose something that will keep your cost down and focus on raising your profit. Here are some examples of tools that you need to start making your video today. * Smartphone – thousand of teenagers make videos daily by simply using mobile phones and still make money through it. * Jing Pro – screen capture software that will only cost you ten dollars.
Jing Pro is recommended because you can record a video using a PowerPoint representation. You can record on your whole computer screen and show people how to perform any task using your computer in real time. * CamStudio – This is much similar to Jing Pro and it’s free to use. * Animoto – One of the best video creation websites online. At $42 a month for unlimited videos, this comes highly recommended.
3. Create your video post
You can now start creating your digital video. However, remember the greater the resolution the better the output. It’s important to choose a good web camera. Make sure you totally light up the area you are going to use while recording. Once your video has been created, you should upload it to your computer so that you can do the formatting and compressing.
4. Compress your video blog
Make sure the video is compressed as far as possible so that your audience will be able to download it and view it quickly. As you do the compressing you must be able to monitor the predicted file size. The video should preferably be into no more than 5 megabytes and with enough resolution.
5. Post your video online.
You can now post your video on any platform that will not delete your link. Choose either your own personal website or public blog site, but the important thing to remember here is that you want to make a profit. Therefore, you should avoid posting your video on any site that prohibits commercialization.
If you have no idea on monetization, the main way you can make money from video blogging would be through Google AdSense and Affiliate Marketing or driving traffic to your own product. Posting your video on a number of sites is a great idea as most people tend to stick with the video providers they prefer. I do have another scenario.
Start A YouTube Channel
There are many people making anywhere from a little bit of money each month to literally thousands and millions of dollars a year on YouTube. Here is a strategy laid out step by step for doing that.
1. Start a niche YouTube Channel.
2. Create videos and post them on your channel.
3. Add a link to an affiliate sales page in the description.
4. Share the video on social media including Facebook and Twitter.
5. Rinse and repeat over and over.
Here is a variation of this.
1. Start a niche blog.
2. Create a blog post around a targeted keyword phrase for SEO.
3. Link to an affiliate product you sell in the blog post.
4. Create a video with a variation of your keyword phrase in the title.
5. Publish your video on YouTube.
6. Use your keyword phrases in the description.
7. Link to the blog post URL in the description to drive traffic to your blog.
